In an electric exchange in the Pretoria High Court, Gerrie Nel, one of South Africa's top attorneys, said it was beyond belief that 29-year-old law graduate and model Reeva Steenkamp would have remained silent in the tiny cubicle with an armed Pistorius shouting and screaming in the adjoining bathroom.Pistorius, who says he fired at what he thought was an intruder, said Steenkamp did not scream at any point in the incident in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013 – a central pillar of his defense.Pistorius denied it, his voice wavering with emotion, before the court adjourned until Monday morning.Pistorius faces life in prison if convicted of murder.
